There aren’t many pitchers in Japan who cut a more imposing figure on the mound than the Hanshin Tigers’ Randy Messenger. There might not be any actually.

Messenger stands 198 cm and weighs 121 kg even though you’d swear those numbers didn’t do him justice. He keeps his hat sitting low, which leaves a shadow across the top half of his face, adding another layer of mystery for batters waiting to see what pitch the powerful right-hander will deliver next.
